Title: From Restriction Conjecture to Kakeya Set Conjecture

Abstract: Kakeya set conjecture is probably one of the most infamous unsolved problems at the intersection of geometric measure theory, incidence combinatorics and real-variable harmonic analysis, which of course provide many possibilities to attack the problem. In this talk we will link this conjecture with the notable Restriction conjecture in harmonic analysis, from which we will run (by ignoring some details) all the way to Kakeya conjecture. We will also see why both are interesting in their own right.
